View Full Version : Miva unable to create directory for graphic upload

05-07-2003, 09:47 PM
When attempting to add my first product image Miva gives me an error:

Unable to create directory '/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/

I've double checked my file paths and they appear to be correct. Do I have to change the default permissions on the /graphics folder after Miva is installed?

This is a very common question we get, and fortunately the answer is very easy...

This is happening because you are logged in securely (https://secure.server/domainname/) instead of non-securely (http://www.yourdomain.com/). Because of the way our servers are setup, the secure server does not have the same file priviliges that the non-secure server does. Part of this includes not necessarily having permission to write/create these directories. So the simple answer is... Login securely when checking your order information, for other store setup/administration functions, login non-securely.

Alrighty then, but if thats the case..........................
I can *only* login securely.
The non-secure admin screen is MIA.
I suppose that has to do w/ the upgrade, perhaps?
So now what? :?
